Bev and I have been big fans of Kerry Polk's songwriting since the first time we heard Polk, Barton, and Towhead sing Home of the Brave. Kerry penned half the songs on the Polk, Barton, and Towhead album, The Way Things Are. In 2004, Kerry released a solo album with 11 of her own songs. Between the two albums, there are 16 songs written by Kerry that have been released. Many of the songs reflect on her life, growing up in the deep South. All are gems.
Due to health problems, Kerry is no longer able to perform. For this very special concert, 13 performers will each perform one song of Kerry's and one of their own. All donations will go to Kerry to help offset ongoing medical expenses.
Thanks to everyone who either came out to celebrate the songs of Kerry Polk or sent donations. The concert was a huge success. Check out our "2015/2016 Past Concerts" Page for pictures.
